The biggest wild life I've had on one of the vessels that I ran in the U.S. Navy, a Torpedo retriever, was a bull sea lion while we were in Georgia Straits. The USN in Canadian waters?? This was a joint military testing area for torpedos.
The Range Officer was a tad bit upset when we reported it. But then he wasn't the one who had to get that animal off my deck.

I would say being eaten would be a serious concern to any of us.

I'm confused??

It must take great skill, sacrifice and determination to sail a boat far enough north to see polar bears. Stupid people aren't generally skilled, determined or willing to make great sacrifice.
Seriously, hand feeding a polar bear? So what does the bear learn from the experience? Look, humans they fed me last time. I think I will ignore that fire stick they have slung over their shoulder, the one that goes bang, and go get dinner.

I don't intend on sailing anywhere near the polar bears, so it isn't a big concern of mine...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Let me guess...Ballenas Island? Edit: I mean Winchelsea Islands? I've had lots of close up photography experience with sea lions, they are big and the bulls are that much bigger. I'm sure getting this guy off was a challenge or did he finally just get fed up and bail out.

This little incident happened last year to a friend of mine, not a very pleasant story for the animal but a story that should be told anyway.

Him and his wife were peacefully anchored in a small bay all by themselves and if I'm not mistaken it was Galley Bay in Desolation Sound for those interested. Anyway, he was hearing wolves which is quite common around these parts. The next thing he knew a small deer started swimming toward him and to his surprise it started trying to get in his cockpit with him sitting right there in amazement. Needless to say it would likely have been a disaster to help the deer so the little critter finally gave up and headed back to the mainland. I would imagine nature took it's course after that.
